Newham Collegiate Sixth Form Centre shortlisted for AJ Retrofit Awards 2015
27 August 2015
The Newham Collegiate Sixth Form Centre has been shortlisted in the heritage/listed buildings category and the schools category in the AJ Retrofit 2015 Awards. Criteria for both categories include setting new standards for the retrofitting of historical buildings and acting as a model for future similar projects, while delivering a solution that provides the client with a better alternative to demolition and rebuilding.
Commenting on the latest shortlisting, Jack Keillor, divisional director in Currie & Brown’s London office, said: "It is wonderful that a project undertaken by a local authority can be nominated for this Architects’ Journal award. It is the start of a new era for a magnificent campus, providing service at the heart of its community."
The AJ Retrofit Awards are dedicated to recognising achievements in design, engineering and construction across the commercial, public and private sectors in the UK. Judges look for evidence of first-class design and delivery, client/user satisfaction, energy/carbon performance and innovation where relevant.
This shortlisting is the latest in a series of prestigious accolades for the civic campus. Currie & Brown provided project and cost management for the restoration of several listed Grade II and Grade II* Edwardian buildings which act as the A-level centre of a group of partner secondary schools in the borough. The company also acted as project manager and cost manager on the construction of a new library and council services building.
